Alexander Community Development is delighted to receive a donation of £1000 from Greenhill HR towards our Transition to Trade programme.
Transition to Trade is a positive pathway for young people who want to get into the construction industry. There has been a sharp drop in the number of school and college leavers entering the construction industry, particularly in certain trades and the home building sector.
The donation from Greenhill HR will go towards the enrichment of the Transition to Trade schools programme for 2021. This donation will allow Alexander’s Community Development to access resources that will enhance the delivery of the programme, focusing on the development of young people’s soft skills.
‘It is as equally important to build up young people’s soft skills such as confidence, leadership, resilience, decision making and time keeping - as it is to upskill young people and provide them with the experience and qualifications to be ready to ‘Transition into a Trade.’ These skills are vital for young people to grow both their personal and professional networks enabling them to thrive in the world of work. These are ultimately the skills that will allow them to showcase their talents in interviews and maintain employment. Which is why we have welcomed this donation from Greenhill HR which we will put towards the enrichment of our Transition to Trade courses this year, to help build up the soft skills of our future tradespeople.’ Aled Bartley-Jones – Project Leader
“We are delighted to be supporting the Transition to Trade initiative run by Alexander’s Community Development. Their plans for 2021 have been impacted by Covid-19 Lockdown, so it’s all the more crucial that they have the backing of small businesses like ourselves who believe in supporting their core mission to equip young people with practical & life skills to gain employment” - Sandy Wilkie - Greenhill HR
Sandy from Greenhill HR took some time out recently to talk to WorkClub about his vision of the future of work as we move through 2021
Values underpin our behaviours, decision-making and influence our leadership style.
We now offer the Barrett Values Centre (PVA) tool to help understand your own values - and an online discussion with a Barrett CTT accredited coach to explore your profile. Two options are available:
You complete your short PVA questionnaire, then we arrange a dedicated session to discuss your values and how you might make best use of them within your role. Session length 30-60 mins.
Using the results of your individual PVAs, we explore coverage across the 7 levels of the Barrett Model and how each of you can play a role in helping ensure team decision-making and performance is maximised. Session length 60-90 mins
Cost: £200 (including prep & facilitation)
Get in touch directly with firstname.lastname@example.org to book a session.
